minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
Hiya Dreamwidth.

Just checking in here. I'm currently two weeks from my baby's estimated birthday, but also 1.5 weeks from giving my last final exam this semester. Let's hope baby girl is not early, yeah? Yeah. I've tried to negotiate this with her and so far we seem to have an understanding. Of course, the belly is also stretching and lumping about in a devious and mildly suspicious manner, so who knows?

I've had a pretty magical time with this pregnancy, as far as I can tell. In the beginning, it was very straightforward to adapt my meals to avoid nausea (the worst it got) and I was able to find time to sleep when the fatigue got to me. Otherwise, my migraines have been nonexistent for the duration, I've had so little oil or moisture in my skin and hair that I shower maybe twice a week at this point, which saves lovely sleeping time, and I've managed to maintain as much of an exercise program as I usually manage during the academic year anyway, so yay!

This last little bit has seen discomfort sleeping, and numbness/tingling in my hands with swelling in the feets, but it's just a few more weeks. I also scheduled two of my lectures to be presentations this week, one is an exam which I think I'll have time to grade (no early labor signs yet, and it's tomorrow, so it's a decent bet) and two lectures of review/worksheets for the first years. We can do this week, baby! Finals are scantron and backup people are set, so it's just a wait and see game now.

Wish me luck getting through the next week and a half! Once the semester is over, I can chill and just work with her schedule (as opposed to stressing and working with her schedule, lol.)
